The Island Made Us Do It...And Reptar Too

So after some window painting and curly fries, Kristin and I had a 1 AM revelation. We've decided after a fair amount of Rugrats viewing that Tommy Pickles is the prototype by which John Locke on Lost was formed.

Follow me on this one. Tommy Pickles is a famously bald baby that hides tools in his diaper and likes to go on adventures with his friends. He usually has a flashlight on him, and likes to talk to weird old people, like his grandparents Boris and Minka and Lou.

John Locke usually hides tools (like knives) down his cargo pants. He likes to go on adventures with his friends. He usually has a torch on him, and he likes to talk to weird old people, like Christian Shepard and whoever the fuck Jacob is (probably Christian Shepard). He too, is famously bald. Clearly, Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse, and J.J. Abrams were Rugrats fans.

This is probably the best and most likely theory I have read.
